Game 72 - Nets vs. Heat - Sunday, April 2, 6:00

The big one. It's not just about extending the winning streak to 12 games or the home winning streak to 7. It's an opportunity to beat yet another division-leading team, after downing Detroit and Phoenix in the past two weeks. A win would also make for a convincing 3-1 series advantage, something that could come in handy if the Nets and Heat tie for the East's second best record, not yet out of the question. Shaquille O'Neal may not play because of a hyperextended knee.
